NISKAMOON CORPORATION ANNUAL REPORT image

Our latest portfolio piece came about when Niskamoon Corporation looked to our team to design their 10th anniversary Annual Report for 2014-2015.

This is the default font Adobe uses when a file contains a non-installed font. The replacement font gives the impression of odd kerning (those gaps between the letters). The best way to avoid this mistake is to convert text to outlines (shapes rather than letters) in the final artwork, which only takes two clicks. It’s time for real change…real change of your designer. Bus-ted.
